the alleged use of chemical weapons by the assad regime. speaking last night, u.s. vice president joe biden said there was no doubt chemical weapons were used and those responsible should be held accountable. the british prime minister david cameron's office backed the white house earlier today saying both governments had clear evidence the regime carried out the attacks. cameron reconvened parliament early to vote for a motion on syria on thursday, but some surrounding cautious on international intervention. sergey lavrov has reportedly warned the u.n. that an attack on syria would destabilize the region. hadly gamble is with us on set. >> the russians aren't the only ones worried about what a post assad syria would look like. i had a chance to catch up with an egyptian billionaire and he said, yes, he thinks assad's days are numbered but is deeply troubled about what will happen to the country when assad is gone. >> the problem right now is exactly that. we want to help the syrian people to get out of dictatorship. that is for sure. but under no way fanatic, terroristic elements that oper

what we heard barack obama and joe biden as vice-presidential candidate in 2008. at one point joe biden said in 2007 if then president bush moved forward with an attack on iran, separate from syria in the middle east, joe biden would lead impeachment charges against the president. they have gone a long way from that. what they're saying now, there won't be a vote in congress but that instead what the president will do is consult with congress, this phone call at 6:00 p.m. eastern and other phone calls that have already happened. there's a lot of intense action as the president faces a lot of pressure on this decision whether he will move forward or not. you heard him in the pbs interview saying it could be a shot across the bow against syria. there are military experts say a shot across the bow sounds symbolic. they wand to hear from the president directly. we haven't from him beyond the press interview and cnn interview last week directly from the military what the mission would be. >> and it's growing, bipartisan push for questions, push for answers and consultation with congress and
another country without congressional consent. here is joe biden. >> i'd like to be clear. the president does not have the authority to launch military action in iran without first seeking congressional a authorization. >> we don't believe any authority the president has would give him the ability to go in without an act of congress. >> the president has no constitutional authority to take this nation to war against a country of 70 million people unless we're attacked or unless there is proof that we are about to be attacked. and if he does, if he does, i would move to impeach him. >> congressman, just to clarify. joe biden from 2007 and nancy pelosi and harry reid all talking about how they felt then about president bush. what do you think is the biggest obstacle for the president? it seems as if republicans in congress, they are kind of caught between a rock and a hard place on giving the go ahead for this. but then allowing the president to almost seem as the dove turned neocon. >> the republicans for past several months have been criticizing the president for doing nothing and now th

. i think joe biden and there are other folks out there that would probably like to be considered. is she anointed? is it over? >> well, yes. but and here is the important thing. you remember the republicans in 2012 when they believed anybody could beat barack obama. you remember michele bachmann saying any one of us on this stage could beat barack obama. and in press row you heard a sharp intake of. [gasp] as she said that. any one of us. republicans went through a period of time where anybody could beat barack obama with whom do we want to beat him? and we had santorum and cane and goodrich and bachmann and all of this stuff because republicans thought -- some republicans thought that beating obama would be a lay down hand. now it's democrats' turns to beat this assumption. they believe the republican party because they watch most television stations and read most newspapers. republican party is ruined overdefeated, they are sowing salt in the wounds of the g.o.p. dead forever. anybody could beat ted cruz or anybody could beat rand paul. when will they start indulging do we real

!, democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. and vice obama president joe biden met with a group of tall -- top lawmakers thursday to discuss growing concerns about the nsa's broad surveillance programs. the meeting occurred just hours after russia granted nsa whistleblower edward snowden tipperary asylum for a year. snowden was the source behind a number of recent weeks about the nsa's ability to conduct surveillance across the globe. most recently, the guardian newspaper revealed the existence of a secret program called xkeyscore that gives nsa analysts real-time access to "nearly everything a typical user does on the internet" including e-mails, chats, and browsing history. the guardian has also revealed the u.s. government has paid more than $150 million to the q over they agency gch last few years to secure access to and influence over britain's intelligence gathering programs. on thursday, white house press secretary jay carney criticized russia for granting snowden asylum. >> we are extremely disappointed the russian government would take this step despite our
and bear arms. on this issue, vice president joe biden -- the nice thing is that you don't need a punchline. [applause] you simply say his name and people naturally laugh. but vice president joe biden had some advice for all of us. if somebody is attacking your home, just go outside with a double barrel shotgun and fire both arrows into the air. which is very good advice. if it happens you're being attacked by a flock of geese. on guns, following the horrific tragedy in newtown, president obama came out saying, not let's go come down on the violent criminals like a ton of bricks. but instead, the president said, we will use this as an excuse to go after the constitutional rights of law- abiding citizens. in washington, the momentum was entirely with the president on this. conventional wisdom was that this was unstoppable. and i will tell you that three senators signed a very simple and short note to hear he read that said we will -- harry reid that said we will filibuster anything that prohibits our right to bear arms.

secretary kerry said yesterday was a moral obscenity. the white house felt -- joe biden was speaking in houston, texas, he says there is no doubt that they were used, were these chemical weapons, and there is little doubt who used them. >> for we know that the syrian regime, the only ones who have the weapons have used chemical weapons multiple times in the past, have the means of delivering those weapons, have been determined to wipe out exactly the places that were attacked by chemical weapons. >> all indications point to a cruise missile attack of some sort, perhaps arias sets, allied arias sets as well. we don't know when or who, that coalition is still forming. we don't know what the end goal is. all we do know is what jay carney said today. we know what it's not. >> we are also very much engaged in an effort to support the opposition in its struggle with the assad regime, as the assad regime continues to try to massacre it's a own people in an effort to maintain power. and it's our firm conviction -- [ inaudible ] but this deliberation and the actions that we are contemplating
to the american public has not come out of the president's own mouth so far, it has been joe biden in the clip we saw and before that, john kerry talking about how morally obscene this was. the president himself, his last comments were very equivocal last week in that interview with chris cuomo. even now i see him kind of holding back, reserving his options. but this is snowballing quickly and the president is about to act, not just because of syria, he's worried about iran, he has to be worried about iran in the sense that whatever he does to defend the red line he laid down months ago is going to be closely watched by iran, has its own nuclear weapons program, a new president that's been making overtures about negotiation. >> the audience is bigger than assad and syria if you take military action. the audience i iran, north korea, it is potential users of wmd. this is a key moment for the president. i think there are calls now from congress as we saw that they want some form of consultation, possibly even a vote. i think it would be in the president's self interest to go down that road, to get
's crucial to determining what punishment as i think joe biden called it, and the french ministers have been saying. there must be a consequence, a price to be paid for having done this. in principle i agree with that. but we must be sure we're punishing the right person, and -- and i'm taking the purely intellectual or perhaps slightly political point that it's in everyone's interest that the indication of that person, that authority that is held responsible, be not simply on the basis of gut feeling or the best -- you know, that's what we think. we need it as hard evidence to show the world the proof. and once that is done, the picture will look very different indeed. >> tonight there are indications president obama has a number of options to deal with syria. patty has more. >> reporter: the obama administration says it will respond to this, but the goal, they insist is not to get rid of the syrian president but to send him a message. >> it is not our policy to respond to this transgression with a regime change. >> reporter: they say no decision has been made, but it seems likely the respo
on the other side about how this resonates for you in new orleans, but this was vice president joe biden earlier talking about one of them. take a look. >> the proposed rule requires people associated with these kinds of trusts or corporations to go through the same background check that individuals have to do. we'll end this means by which to get these most dangerous weapons to people who are not under the law allowed to own them. >> so mr. mayor, like other urban and major cities, new orleans struggles with the issue of crime. what specifically did the president say that resonated that you can take back and implement for the people of new orleans. >> first of all, the fact that he had the meeting on the day before he was going to commemorate dr. king's address, and simultaneously considering our nation as response, really indicated to us that he's serious about finding every which way we can to curb urban violence, so that spoke volumes. secondly the mayors around the country are working on the same kind of cat trophic problems, what we have said, is -- is a catastrophic event that's o

joe biden in scranton, his hometown. but i decided to stop here for a couple of reasons. number one, i've been told that it's very important for me to get a speedies while i'm here. so we're going to pick one up and try it on the road. number two, i'm excited because the great work that suny campuses like binghamton are doing to keep costs down for hard-working students like so many of you. the chancellor is making sure that hundreds of thousands of suny students all across the state are getting a world class higher education. but without some of the debt and financial burden that is stopping too many young people from going to college. that's what we want for all of our students and all of our families all across the country. over the past month i've been visiting towns throughout america and i've talked about how do we secure a better bargain for the middle class and everybody who's trying to work their way into the middle class? we've fought our way through a very brutal recession. and now we're at a point where we're creating jobs. the economy is growing. budget deficits are fallin
of a key international norm that barack obama and joe biden and other world leaders have come together several years ago to prevent and to try to prohibit and create a global allergy against the proliferation and use of weapons of mass destruction, and they believe that not to respond to this case -- it's a very different case than the ongoing questions about assad and internal instability and, you know, the fight for syria. this is about a global norm, and that is why they are going to basically punish parts of the syrian government and try to create a capacity. that's odd about this is that they are basically telegraphing to the world that they're going to do it, and one will have to assess after the fact whether or not syria was able to harden, move, or hide assets that they fear will be attacked. it's not often, i mean, if you were in a perfect military planning incident, you would attack without notice. the obama administration is giving very, very wide notice, in facts an attack is coming in my view. >> steve clemons. washington editor at large for the "atlantic" magazine and som
operation, so you have the obama administration with people like joe biden and john kerry who spent years criticizing the bush administration for its unilateralism doing something that truly is unilateral as opposed to things done in the bush administration like the overthrow of saddam hussein that had dozens of coalition members along with them. >> what's the difference between doing it this way and dropping a drone on somebody in yemen that's on a kill list? >> there isn't any difference. the president has full constitutional authority to launch this attack against syria. >> you don't think he has to seek approval? >> absolutely not. >> you disagree with members of congress that want that approval. >> there's a political question whether he would be better off getting congressional approval under the theory in on the takeoff, in on the landing, but as a matter of constitutional law, there's absolutely no requirement. if congress doesn't like what he does, they should cut off the funds. >> i thought today secretary kerry, whether you agreed with him or not, looked presidential. i thought
